    STRADIVARI SOLO VIOLIN DEMO - Orange Blossom Special

    Many of you have asked for a demo of the upcoming Stradivari Violin. Here is a hot rendition of Orange Blossom Special'. This well known country tune demonstrates different bowing techniques.

    Here is a link

    http://www.garritan.com/Strad/OrangeBlossomSpecial.mp3

    As you can hear, the solo Stradivari is adept at playing fiddle tunes just as well as virtuoso classical works.

    Many thanks to Robert Davis for his assitance in realizing this country classic. And to Giorgio Tommasini and Stefano Lucato for their intense work in making this instrument possible.

    We will we posting more demos in the next few weeks and we're also getting ready to start taking pre-orders soon.

    The library is expected to be released as a Kontakt 2 library at first and followed by a Kontakt player instrument. We'll post more details as soon as we can.

    Enjoy!

    Gary Garritan

    Hot dang! I knew there was a reason I just got Kontakt 2. Will there be a significant advantage of one format (Kontakt 2 vs. Kontakt player) over another?

    Wow! Sounds amazing Gary! Love the smears/gliss/portamento/slides . . whatever you could call them on a Stradivarius Bluegrass Violin Fiddle!

    What's next? GPBB (Garritan Personal Bluegrass Band) or would it be the GPHoedown?? I've been looking for a good JUG sample!

    How much longer do you think it will be until the Virtual Instrument route is taken? I should probably just give in and buy Kontakt2 . . .but I'm trying to save some moolah to go back to college!

    When my father was in the band, the Buckaroos (Buck Owens) did this tune. The late Don Rich would play the fiddle and my dad played bass. I have heard it MANY times. lol

    I love it!! I can't wait to get my hands on it . . . look out for Sean's Violin Concerto No 1 (and perhaps my own set of caprices and suites, yay!)

    Gary!

    WOWSERS!!

    That is so realistic - I wonder - how much was "live" playing vs. programmed.

    Getting tingles listening to this.

    Great licks - I would like a bit more detache on the lines at 0:13-0:23, thought, sounds legato to my old ears. But I can't wait for this lib either - I already have several songs that absoultely require either a real jazz violinist or this lib.
